ScreenCraft Names Fellowship Winners

ScreenCraft has announced the recipients of the 4th annual ScreenCraft Screenwriting Fellowship. The program is designed to advance the careers of talented screenwriters through ongoing consultation and introductions to key entertainment executives and talent representatives. Past ScreenCraft Fellowship winners have optioned their projects and signed with top Hollywood representatives at United Talent Agency, 3 Arts, Anonymous Content, Paradigm Talent Agency, ICM, Bellevue Productions and more.

Selected from over 2,000 applicants worldwide who submitted features and pilots, these ScreenCraft Fellows will each receive a $1,000 writing grant and a trip to Los Angeles to meet with executives, producers and representatives, and the following ScreenCraft mentors: Geoffrey Fletcher, Academy Award-winning screenwriter of Precious; Diana Ossana, Academy Award-winning screenwriter of Brokeback Mountain; Robert Moresco, Academy Award-winning screenwriter of Crash and producer of Million Dollar Baby; and Kristina Reed, Academy Award-winning Producer of Disney's Feast as well as Big Hero 6, Kung Fu Panda and studio executive on worldwide blockbuster Frozen.

This year's recipients are:

  • Ryan W. Smith, feature screenplay Jacaranda
  • Anna Klassen, TV drama pilot teleplay 14 Words
  • Anya Meksin, feature screenplay Taminex


Jacaranda, a searing dramatic thriller set in 1986 Apartheid South Africa, centers on a young black freedom fighter who sets out to rescue her father, who has been wrongfully arrested for a bombing she caused. Through her pursuit, she comes face-to-face with the grotesque underbelly of the Apartheid regime, and forms an unlikely friendship with a member of her perceived enemy.

In 14 Words, intrepid Sophia attempts to infiltrate a white supremacy group called Aryan Resurgence to further research for her exposé. Meanwhile, the cult's leader is stepping down and his son - who has radical new plans for the group - is taking over. Sophia inches closer to uncovering the hate group's darkest secrets, but little does she know, she's the key to their biggest plot yet.

Taminex is an emotional and suspenseful sci-fi thriller set over the course of one night about a sheltered young woman in the midst of an urban pandemic. When her boyfriend Gene falls ill with a deadly virus, Leigh must venture outside her cocoon of safety to procure the only drug that can save Gene's life and her own-Taminex. Amid a citywide shortage, Leigh must rely on a mercurial black-market drug dealer she met online, who promises to sell her Taminex but only if she travels to the city's most dangerous district and the outbreak's epicenter.
